Uptown Greenville's Freeboot Fridays

I was contacted by Uptown Greenville, NC to create these caricature portraits for some of their special volunteers. In 2001, Uptown Greenville started the Freeboot Friday live downtown music concerts. The pirate theme series has become very popular among locals and visitors drawing an average attendance fo 2,800.

City of 1,000 Easels

On Sunday I was part of the Asheville Area Arts Council's City of 1,000 Easels event. Around 110 artists descended downtown Asheville to create art. I set up at Pritchard Park and drew my caricatures on the street.

Downtown Asheville Caricatures

This week I drew caricatures on the streets of Asheville. I set up one day near Pack Square, the "center" of downtown Asheville. I also drew at the Lexington Arts and Fun Festival for the second year.
